I would like to welcome Elisabeth Wheatley to Book Flame
How did the idea for the Argetallam Saga come about?
What character intrigued you the most as the author? And why?
Since your first book would you say your writing has evolved or stayed the same?
Being a young published author is a huge accomplishment, how do you balance writing and schoolwork?
What would you say to young people who have a dream of becoming published authors as well?
Which fictional character would you most like to meet?
eBooks or print?
Do you have any hidden talents?
Well, I’ve been told I have a gift with languages and singing. I know American Sign Language and I’m learning Spanish (slowly) while dabbling in Latin and a little bit of Italian. I’m not fluent in any of them (yet!), but I enjoy learning, studying, and singing in them. (Yes, you can sing in Sign Language, just not with your voice.)
Can you tell us a little about your latest book The Secrets of the Vanmars?
On a side note: For those of you who noticed that Saoven and Janir were attracted each other in The Key of Amatahns...well, you’ll just have to read it!
About The Secrets of the Vanmars ( Argetallam Saga #2)
After her adventures with the Key of Amatahns, sixteen-year-old Janir Caersynn Argetallam returns home to find Brevia on the brink of war with a neighboring country, Stlaven. Her foster-father and even Saoven—a brave young elf warrior—think it will be safe at the castle where Janir grew up. However, while trying to unravel a looming mystery, Karile—self-taught wizard and Janir’s self-appointed best friend—becomes certain that there is danger in the mountains surrounding Janir’s childhood home and that it has something to do with Stlaven’s most powerful family, the Vanmars…
About the author
Elisabeth Wheatley started writing very short (and rather silly) stories when she was around six. She became a voracious reader and after being practically forced by her cousins to watch Disney's version of "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," she developed a chronic passion for fantasy.
Elisabeth eventually went to work on what would become "The Key of Amatahns" when she was eleven. "The Key of Amatahns" is the first in the seven-book series, "Argetallam Saga."
When she isn't spellbound by reading fantasy books and writing her own, Elisabeth trains and shows her Jack Russell Terrier, Schnay, makes goat cheese, and studies mythology.
